Today, I’m thrilled to announce that Rubrik has become the first Cloud Data Management platform to be certified by the U.S. Department of Defense Information Network Approved Products List (DODIN APL). This certification, which placed us under the CyberSecurity Tools category, reflects Rubrik’s commitment to building a secure, next-generation platform for government agencies. As the only backup and recovery solution on the Approved Products List, we are excited by the opportunity to further support defense agencies in modernizing their infrastructure and on-ramping to the cloud.

The DODIN APL provides a consolidated list of products that are approved for purchase after rigorous evaluation. DOD components are required to fulfill their system needs only through APL listed products, meaning that the APL must be consulted prior to purchasing a system or product. By meeting the strict security standards, Rubrik’s solutions can immediately be used within existing government networks and streamlines the purchase process for customers.

In alignment with this certification, Rubrik’s technology also supports compliance with the Data Center Optimization Initiative (DCOI) and Modernizing Government Technology Act (MGT) mandates. These require agencies to improve their infrastructure to be more efficient, secure, resilient, and cost-effective, particularly through increased cloud adoption. The mandates provide a huge opportunity for federal agencies to access funds to modernize their infrastructures. Rubrik’s DODIN APL certification makes it even easier for our defense agencies to get these improved systems up and running quickly.

Rubrik is dedicated to supporting all federal customers and partners in executing their missions. We have quickly built one of the industry’s most comprehensive portfolio of government certifications and accreditations. We recently became the first Cloud Data Management platform to reach Common Criteria EAL2+ certification. In addition, Rubrik offers FIPS 140-2 Level-2 validated self-encrypting drives and support for all major AWS and Microsoft Azure government infrastructure clouds.

It has been an impactful year for us in the federal market. We’ve experienced accelerated adoption among the Department of Defense and Civilian agencies who are looking to simplify their data center environments while achieving taxpayer savings and lowering operational risk. When talking to our federal customers, we find that Rubrik helps them securely manage data from creation to expiration and improve operational efficiency through policy-based automation and robust third-party integrations.

Becoming the first DODIN APL certified-backup and recovery solution validates Rubrik’s commitment to its federal customers. We are excited to further expand our government support and federal use cases.
